A former member of a superstar boy band is starring on stage in Weston-super-Mare next month, taking audiences on a romantic trip back to the rocking 1960s.

Antony Costa, of Blue, will star in Save the Last Dance For Me at The Playhouse, in High Street, from August 15-20.

The show tells the story of two teenage sisters, on holiday for the first time without their parents in the summer of 1963.

The sisters meet a handsome American man who invites them to a dance at a nearby air base.

Tickets are priced £31 for evening shows at 7.30pm from Monday to Thursday, while Friday and Saturday’s evening shows are priced at £32.50.
